Good boy, No more!


Though I'm with my buddies last night, I am super bored to death. I don't know why. To kill the boredom, I grabbed five sticks of cigarettes from my buddy's Malboro Light packet. I lit one stick after another. And before I noticed it, it's all gone. Call me whatever you want, a chain smoker perhaps, I wouldn't mind.

When I was younger, there are times when I wonder why some people smoke. Are they doing that just to be hip and cool? Stupid morons. Some believe that smoking makes them astig but not to me. For me, the idea is just plain bulls***. An innocent-looking guy like me shouldn't be burning my lungs out for me to be "in".

But there's a saying that, as time goes by, people change and I'm not an exception. It came to me that it's not that bad if I will try to smoke some time, unless my mom and my dad will know it. I first puffed a cigarette in December 2007, I was 16 back then. My friends invited me to smoke and just to feed my curiousity, I joined them. I tried... ooohhhh... it feels like I'm in Cloud 9. Call it a pleasure, a guilty pleasure. At that moment, I got the idea why people choose to smoke though they know it's bad; it is because of the unexplainable sensation it brings. Believe me, there is.

However, it is very clear to me that there's an ugly truth that lies behind every cigarette pack: as what the government says, SMOKING IS DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH. It is really is. As a nursing student, I know that smoking can lead to several lung and heart complications, the worst, an untimely demise.

If I could give a handful of reasons why to smoke, it is without a doubt that you can came up a thousand reasons not to. That's why I'm trying my best not to perceive that cigarette is my newest bestfriend. But, I can't promise to you and to myself that I won't do it again. Unless, the devil inside me won't crave for some puffin'.


Did you hate me after reading this post?

Yes, I did hate you after reading this... Hmm..

I know it's non of my business and I shouldn't be sticking my nose on this but, as you've said, cigarette smoking may lead to bonggang bonggang kamatayan, so why do it, right?

Payong kaibigan lang, try to avoid it.

:)

.pOot! said...

hi kuya kurog!

salamat kuya sa payo. pagkatapos kong mabasa comment mo, bigla akong natauhan. alam kong walang magandang naidudulot ang yosi pero patuloy ko pa ring ginagawa. hmmmp... ano ng nangyayari sakin? tsk. tsk.

kaibigan ka talaga kuya :)

Kurog said...

Well, ako rin minsan, may mga bagay na pilit na ginagawa kahit hindi ko naman alam ang reason kung bakit.

Natural lang naman yan sa tao. We are drawn to thinking na dapat nating gawin ang mga bagay. Pero time will come na marerealize mo rin na mali yun, pero dahil sa nakasanayan na, mahihirapan kang baguhin ito.

Parang porn video lang yan eh. Ehe... Out of curiosity, you'll watch. Tapos magagandahan ka (at masasarapan ka sa ginagaw mo or in some cases ninyo ng mga kasama mo habang nanonood) then, the next thing you'll know, di mo na mapigilan manood nito.

Kaya habang hindi ka pa lumulubog na bongga dyan sa pagsisigarilyo, stop na kapatid.

isa pa, as you've said, wag lang malaman ng parents mo. E pano kung malaman nila diba, you're gonna be in big trouble! Ehe...

Hayun lang...

Joni Rei said...

Yay. Weird. You really look so innocent. walang bisyo ganun. ahaha. Curiosity nga naman ehehe. Basta as much as possible try to control yourself. masama yan.

.pOot! said...

hi kuya kurog!

weh. haba nun ah.

kaya ko pa naman kuya maiwasan ang pag-smoke kasi i spent most of my life nicotine-free. hehe.

salamat kuya sa bonggang-bonggang advice. i really appreciated it :)

.pOot! said...

hi joni rei!

wow naman. innocent-looking ba talaga ako? haha. sa'yo na nanggaling kaya maniniwala na ako. thanks.

weird din kasi mas bata pa ang nag-aadvice sa akin. hehe. salamat :) yeah, i will try to control myself. pagbabawalan ko na ang sarili kong mag-yosi.

Kurog said...

@joni

sa palagay ko, gurl, kailangan mo nang magpunta sa Executive Optical! Ahahaha...

Si poot, innocent looking? napakalaking question mark nun! aha...

@poot

naniwala ka naman? Ehe...

Sige, basta iwas na... ehe...

Ayun, ingat kay Ondoy!

.pOot! said...

hi kuya kurog!

epal ka naman oh. innocent looking nga daw. umepal ka pa :( weh. hehe. peace!

Jay.L said...

dati ng-try din ako mg-yosi para maging in sa barkada pero parang ayaw tlg ng yosi sa akin hehe :)

Ax said...

Jubert. Sorry, I have to call you by your name rather than po0t.

I have tried smoking. I know the feeling of curiosity. My cousins and my brother are smokers. There is this indelible trespass of experiencing what you wanted to feel.. that is learning how to smoke.

I cross that territory. And so I learned how to puff cigarette.

But my brother told me that I still have time. The addiction is not strong enough. The wanting is at the level of curiosity.

It would just cost you money, it would cost you good lung tissues, it would cost you your time.

It is not the 'different' sensation you are feeling. It is the feeling of 'first time' or 'doing it again after a long time.' It is the feeling of doing something you were not allowed but because you wanted to try, you tried. It is the feeling of trying something you thought was different. And so IT FELT DAMN EXCITING AND EUPHORIC.

But believe me, Jubert, try not to continue. Just what my brother told me, YOU still have time.

---

I am not stopping you to smoke. I am not changing your life.

Pero dahil one time, tinawag mo akong KUYA, kaya ganito ako sa'yo.

Haha, pagalitan ka sana ni Jason at ni Tsi!

Ax said...

innocent looking your face. kampi ako kay Kurog!

rawk en rol!

K.noizki said...

Good on you. I started to smoke back in college, I was in my 4th yr in Nursing, well let's just say, for the heck of it, "if they can, why can't I" attitude. I would smoke like a few sticks, a few means a dozen (no to flip-tops), insert 'em in between Nursing 101 books. BAD.

I tried to stop like 3 yrs ago, I did. I tried. But failed, I know (and they say it's a process). Good news is, I am now nicotine-FREE for 4 months. It wasn't easy. I had to really really quit. I've gone cold turkey for weeks, chilled, and was sick, so ngayon ok na ako. My only vice is eating more, esp sweets (just to kill the cravings) and lotsa water.

I am supporting you on this, kasi sayang naman ang baby-face-looking mo, haha.

HATS OFF!

.pOot! said...

hi jayL!

salamat sa pagdaan. pers taym mong mapadpad dito kaya CONGRATULATIONS! hehe.

hindi ako nagyoyosi parang maging in sa barkada. almost all of them smoke even girls. pero hindi dahil sa na-pressure ako kaya ako nagstart mag-smoke. its for personal gains kumbaga. :)

.pOot! said...

hi kuya ax!

hehe. mahaba-haba yun. medyo sinermonan mo ako pero ok lang, super ok.

thanks kuya. while reading your post, i felt the love of a big bro to his baby bro. sows. cheesy. pero totoo. siguro nga kuya, na-overexcite lang ako kasi after a long time, almost 5 months maybe, ay nasayaran ulit ng sigarilyo labi ko. hmmp. pero i'll try kuya not to do that again. :)

... serious mode off...

tangins naman. kinampihan pa si kurog. wooh. mga epal kayo. hahaha!

.pOot! said...

i like to clear things first...

1. hindi ako adik sa yosi.

2. di ako nagi-smoke sa school.

3. pers taym ko ulit kagabi after 5 months ( or is it 6 months )

4. pinakamarami ko na ang 5 sticks kagabi.

hehe. sana malinaw na.

bleh!

.pOot! said...

hi kuya K!

di naman ako kuya ganun. hehe. di ko naman iniipit sa nsg. books ang yosi packs. wehehe.

dito samin uso flip tops. :) 4 months? that's good. btw, alang withdrawal syndrome?

suportahan kita dyan kuya. no smoking sa blogosphere. hehe.

oh kitam kuya ax at kuya kurog, baby face daw ako. hmmp. wala ng kokontra.

Kurog said...

Nako poot! dala lang yan ng trauma nila kay Ondoy! Feeling nila end of the world na kaya kailangan nilang magpakabait sa kapwa. Hence, nagiging mabait lang sila sa'yo! Ahahaha...

In fairness ha... Nawalan ako ng gana sa pagsusulat ng posts, pero na-adik naman ako sa pagkokomento! Aha... Look at Kuya Tsi's newest post, mahaba pa yung comment ko sa mismong post nya! Ahaha...

O sya, babyface ka na nga... Yung babyface na singer ha... Aha...

pinkdiaries said...

hello poot, they wont hate you after they read your post, ok lang yan, lahat ng kabataan dumadaan sa ganyan?! just do your best para makaiwas.. :-)

TSI said...

Try using filters on it haha!!! or ultra lights i prefer, poOt you're 18 ryt? Alam mo na ang tama at mali at ang mga bawal, sumbong kita kay K!!!

Goodluck lolz.

Ax said...

waah. sabi ko 'sana pagalitan ka ni Tsi.'

pero bat ganyan comment ni Tsi! yawts. oo nga naman, kung gusto mo mag experiment, try using filters or ultra lights.

oist, poot. sesermunan talaga kita pag nagpatuloy ka pa. mabasa lang to ni jason lagot ka.

Kurog said...

ANIMUS said...

hi juB!know what?me too..i tried puffing those butts but yes its true that it may just lead to severe disease....

wala lang..hehehe

kg said...

not hate, just sad. sad for you.

when you're older, you will understand why we are reacting this way. you will never get the point of why you SHOULDN'T smoke unless you're experiencing it's adverse effects. and unfortunately, by then, it will be too late.

when you're young, di mo pa nakikita ang consequences ng action mo, you're after the "sensation." but 10 years from now, you will gladly give up the sensation you experienced 10 years ago, and you would give anything to bring back those times, just so you can change your ways.

just a friendly reminder. :)

PS, lahat tayo dumadaan dyan, don't worry, kaya nga dapat makinig ka sa nakakatanda! he! he! pasung-paso man, totoong papunta ka pa lang, pabalik na nag matatanda [he! he! hindi sinaman ang sarili!]

Kurog said...

Correct! Ehe...

Kailangan talaga, poot, nakikinig tayo sa mga matatanda...

Katulad ni Kuya Tsi at ni Kuya Ax na parang mga tatay na natin! Wahahaha...

Peace!

Hayan ha, dapat matuto ka na ng leksyon mo. Ehe... Dami nang 'thunders' na nagpayo sa'yo! Ehehehe...

.pOot! said...

hi kuya kurog!

oo nga kuya parang napapasarap pagko-comment mo dito ah. ikaw lang yata nakapuno ng comment box ko. LOL.

.pOot! said...

hi ate pink!

thanks po :) yeah, i will try my best. that's a promise!

salamat po sa pagdaan.

.pOot! said...

hi kuya TSI!

sa FB ko na lang po i-send comment ko kasi po baka mabasa ni kuya ax. wew.

btw, anong filters? lol. how about ultra lights? i'm just curious (period)

cheers!

Kurog said...

@ poot!

May pa-period-period ka pang nalalaman dyan!

E sa curiosity nga nag-umpisa yang cigarette issue na yan eh! Wahahaha...

.pOot! said...

hi kuya ax!

oo nga. kaya nga natakot akong mabasa ito ni kuya TSI kasi baka sermunan niya din ako. haha. pero basahin mo naman comment niya sa taas... pinayuhan pa akong gumamit ng filter at ultra lights. weh. ano yun? haha.

btw, asan na pala si pareng hamster? ang panghi na nung blog niya. haha

.pOot! said...

.pOot! said...

.pOot! said...

hi mark!

really? uhmmm... you're bad. LOL.

nung review, every night nagi-smoke ako. pampatanggal ng stress at antok. nakaka-two to three sticks ako per night at that time.

thanks ulit sa pagdaan :) hehe. miss you.

.pOot! said...

hi ate grace!

kaya po i will try not to puff a cigarette again para di ako magsisisi sa huli. weh.

i lab this one: "papunta ka pa lang, pabalik na ang matatanda". hahaha. uhmmm... kasama sa "mga matatanda" dito sina kuya TSI, kuya kurog, kuya ax, kuya nash, ate pink... LOL.

ANIMUS said...

TSI said...

Guys si poOt ay 18 years old na and i guess he's old enough para mag decide kung ano ang bawal o hindi..i'm not encouraging him take note ha hmm..but i guess part yan ng isang teenager na sumubok ng mga ganyang bagay, come to think of it, instead of yosi, food na lang poOt lalo na't wala ka pang stable job (biglang nagpayo hehe)

Yung filter na sinasabi ko is an extension para mabawasan yung nico na papasok sa katawan mo at ang ultra lights naman eh mga yosi na mababa ang content ng tar at nico hehe..meron niyan Marlboro ultra lights fliptop hehe waaaah, tigilan mo na yan poOt lolz..

Hi Ax hehe buzz me pag di ka na busy.

fufu said...

smoking is not always bad... but you look too young .... make sure you are legally and proudly smoking ok? erm if possible i will advise you quit it :) anyway if i had the chance going to visit you...pls dont smoke ok? XD

blurosebluguy said...

no...because its your choice

and

yes...cause i care!

livingstain said...

Dahil alam mo naman ang mga maidudulot nyan at nasa edad ka na, i think enjoy mo na lang... wag mo ng isipin ang mga mangyayari kasi alam mo na yun di ba...

Allen Yuarata said...

I smoke when it's cold (that's like once in a blue moon). I admit that it doesn't do me anything good but please, don't feel regret today and do it again tomorrow. If you want to smoke, then do it without remorse. If you think it doesn't feel right, then stop it. Like you said, it's dangerous.

It really is. so the answer is in you alone. Alam mo na din naman kung ano pa mga sasabihin namin if you ask for our advice. Might as well follow the advice or not ask at all diba. Kaya mo yan. Quit it now.

dhyoy said...

love pa rin kita... :)

kapag nagbago isip mo mas lab kita :)

.pOot! said...

hi kuya dencios!

yeah. when i smoking, nag-eenjoy naman ako pero bale wala yun kung yung mga taong concern sa akin ay hindi.

di na ako magsisigarilyo just to kill the time pero siguro pa may occassion pwede pa.

:)

.pOot! said...

hi mark!

REDLAN said...

I tried it too kasi naman yung sister ko nagso-smoke din. Pero hindi ko makuha yung pleasure that cigarette give to those who love it. Sa narining ko nakakabawa yan ng feeling stress at most smoker told me na kapag depress sile yung ang outlet nila. Gusto ko man sabihin sa elder sister ko na masama ang manigarilyo lalo na sa tumatanda hindi ko magawa dahil hindi naman ako perpekto. Baka balikan niya ako. lol. The fact na ikaw mismo ang makakalutas o makapagbabago sa sarili mo.

Pero I hate lang talaga yung may mga taong nagsu-smoke sa paligid mo, lalo na sa iyong place. Mabaho kasi ang amoy lalo na dumidikit sa damit at sa balat.

.pOot! said...

hi redlan!

yeah! pareho tayo. kahit na nagi-smoke ako, naiirita ako sa smoke ng cigarettes. hehe. bangag nga ako. lol.

thanks sa pagdaan :)
